Most "sugar free" products on the market are made with maltitol a sugar alcohol, even does that say made with splenda. Maltitol is more like sugar has more of the same qualities and is cheap they can claim that it can't be absorbed so they can put a very low net carb amount. But the truth is that maltitol has at least a glycemic index of 20 and some people absorbed it more than others so it can have and impact on blood sugar on many diabetics. These products are also filled with a lot of cheap artificial ingredients not really health food. So beware when buying "sugar free" and reading net carbs labels.

Maltitol sometimes spikes me, but always has me staying in the bathroom for hours afterwards. My body does NOT like sugar alcohols.
